Freshwater Wetlands Project - Bryant University

Site Map

An ongoing monitoring program of a mitigation wetland is being conducted by Ecology students at Bryant College in Smithfield, RI. The wetland is located on Rt. 7, about 1/2 mile north of Rt. 116.  The monitoring program began in 1997, just after construction of the wetland by the RI Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the upgrading of Rt. 7 and the development of the industrial/commercial site nearby.  Since this expansion of land use was expected to result in increased stormwater runoff, it was thought imperative to protect nearby wetlands.
Data reported for this wetlands study are presented elsewhere on this web site, and are updated approximately twice a year.
